Is NiSource stock undervalued or overvalued?

Valuing NiSource stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of NiSource's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

NiSource's P/E ratio

NiSource's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, NiSource shares trade at around 20x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

NiSource's PEG ratio

NiSource's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.7544. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into NiSource's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

NiSource's EBITDA

NiSource's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.8 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a NiSource's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

NiSource's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like NiSource.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

NiSource's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 34.8

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and NiSource's overall score of 34.8 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 68th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like NiSource is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

NiSource's environmental score

Environmental score: 18.2/100

NiSource's environmental score of 18.2 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that NiSource is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

NiSource's social score

Social score: 13.52/100

NiSource's social score of 13.52 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that NiSource is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

NiSource's governance score

Governance score: 6.58/100

NiSource's governance score puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that NiSource is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

NiSource's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. NiSource scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that NiSource hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) summary

NiSource Inc was last rated for ESG on: 2019-01-01.

Total ESG score 34.8
Total ESG percentile 68.02
Environmental score 18.2
Environmental score percentile 4

NiSource share dividends

67%

Dividend payout ratio: 67.03% of net profits

Recently NiSource has paid out, on average, around 67.03% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), NiSource shareholders could enjoy a 3.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In NiSource's case, that would currently equate to about $0.91 per share.

NiSource's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

NiSource's most recent dividend payout was on 18 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 July 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have NiSource's shares ever split?

NiSource's shares were split on a 2545:1000 basis on 1 July 2015. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2545 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your NiSource shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 60.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for NiSource shares which in turn could have impacted NiSource's share price.

NiSource share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, NiSource's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.0713 up to $32.3307. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while NiSource's is 0.3539. This would suggest that NiSource's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
